Falkensteiner repositioning: Focus on four types of holiday motivation

first_imgFalkensteiner Hotels & Residences is repositioning itself, aiming to become the leading hotel group in Central and Southern Europe.  “The new branding process allows us to redistribute hotels according to four types of holiday motivations – “activity”, “pleasure”, “fun” and “relaxation”. Clear positioning makes it easier for the guest to find a suitable hotel that will suit his wishes and expectations.“Points out Erich Falkensteiner, a member of the society and founder. “We have a clear vision for Falkensteiner Hotels & Residences in the future. Our goal is to become the leading hotel group in the holiday segment in Central and Southern Europe. New projects are already in the pipeline – including two exclusive hotels, in Cortina d’Ampezzo in Italy and near Kronplatz in South Tyrol, which will further strengthen Falkensteiner’s leading role as a hotel group in the travel and leisure segment.” concludes Otmar Michaeler, CEO of Falkensteiner Michaeler Tourism Group (FMTG) The basis of the repositioning is primarily the promise to the guests: “For every stage of life, they offer a hotel for ideal moments of rest. ” The offer of the Falkensteiner hotel group includes a total of 26 hotels and three apartment resorts in the four- and five-star categories in seven European countries. Under the Falkensteiner Hotels & Residences brand, this hotel group offers 4.700 rooms and more than 1,7 million overnight stays and has a turnover of 180 million euros.  In 2018, Falkensteiner began the process of a comprehensive, strategic repositioning of the brand in order to continue building its position as the leading family group of holiday hotels in Central Europe. To fulfill this promise, they will further adapt their offer and services to the needs of guests, but will also focus all future business processes more strongly on interaction with current and future guests. The new marketing and development strategy of the hotel industry in the holiday segment is the reason for the sale of the hotel in the City Hotel in Vienna’s Margareten district.last_img read more

Richard Sherman, other NFL players note league’s hypocrisy with latest coronavirus protocols

first_imgThe NFL is putting a stop to the swap for 2020.According to multiple reports, the NFL is attempting to limit unnecessary interaction between players, personnel and media should games get underway this fall. Among those policies, the NFL is going to outlaw postgame conversations among players and won’t allow for jersey exchanges, something that’s grown increasingly popular in recent years.  It’s a pretty nonsensical thing to do, considering that players are spitting, breathing, hitting, tackling, contacting and are generally within six feet of each other for a three-hour game. While not every player will interact with every other player of the opposition’s 53-man roster, with the way COVID-19 can spread, it seems like another wonky, not-common-sense half-measure from the league.While the banning of jersey swaps is supposedly endorsed by the NFLPA, San Francisco DB Richard Sherman led the way with criticism of the NFL’s latest COVID-19 policy:This is a perfect example of NFL thinking in a nutshell. Players can go engage in a full contact game and do it safely. However, it is deemed unsafe for them to exchange jerseys after said game. 😂🤣😂 https://t.co/fWefsUSVDc— Richard Sherman (@RSherman_25) July 9, 2020Other NFL players and personalities also noted the league’s hypocrisy.This has to be a joke… https://t.co/OrJBcBtiFl pic.twitter.com/cA8Iu0LI39— Randall Cobb (@rcobb18) July 9, 2020thats DAMN SILLY bro.. 🤦🏾‍♂️ https://t.co/QDOwn2G3bc— Deshaun Watson (@deshaunwatson) July 9, 2020So we can hit eachother ALL game but can’t shake hands after? 😂 https://t.co/9qrAoYIr8y— Darron Lee (@DLeeMG8) July 9, 2020No postgame interactions after sweating and spitting on each other for three hours. 👌 https://t.co/dVllVof4RD— Andrew Brandt (@AndrewBrandt) July 9, 2020So we can tackle each other for 60min but can’t exchange jersey that takes 2 mins😂😂😂 https://t.co/5RKq54T0mH— Darius Slay (@bigplay24slay) July 9, 2020this is like when teachers would enforce NO GRINDING at high school dances like kids weren’t going to after parties https://t.co/g28AL2ud1s— Mina Kimes (@minakimes) July 9, 2020 NFL teams will be forbidden from postgame interactions within 6 feet of each other and jersey exchanges between players will be prohibited during the 2020 season, sources say.Another way the NFL will look different in the COVID-19 world.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) July 9, 2020The idea is that the NFL is attempting to limit interaction before and after the game to limit the potential for coronavirus transmission among players. (Hopefully this means disallowing postgame handshakes between the coaches, as well.) Yeah, about that…last_img read more
